Of all the skills that a gemcutter must learn, polishing remains the most essential - and the most difficult to master. The successful conclusion to nearly any lapidary project... whether facting, cabochon cutting, or carving... lies primarily with the quality of the polish. In this critical, ever changing difficult area, gemcutters constantly strive for a better grip on essential principles, tools, techniques, materials, and processes.

This book is about polishing all gem materials, and applies to all lapidary workers: faceters, cabochon cutters, and carvers. It covers polishing principles, polish and carrier materials, making various polishing tools, special polishing tactics with different materials, gemstone specifications list, crystallographic information, and much more.
